Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino won't blame Michel Vorm for Liverpool opener

Postado Setembro 16, 2018

Pochettino somewhat expected Tottenham's 2-1 loss at Watford, who along with Liverpool and Chelsea are the only teams with four wins from as many Premier League games this season.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino struck either side of half-time at Wembley to make it five wins in as many games for last season's Champions League runners-up. Erik Lamela grabbed what turned out to be a consolation goal for Spurs in added time.

Spurs were looking to bounce back from losing at Watford prior to the global break, however, his side never really got going against a slick, well oiled Liverpool machine that have won all five of their Premier League matches to date.

Follow the game with us below.

Liverpool blitzed Spurs early, creating two chances in the first three minutes with an opening goal being pulled back for Sadio Mané attempting a touch in an offside position. You always know our attacking threat will hurt the opposition and score goals, so for us as a team it's about defending properly and that's everyone from the goalkeeper to the striker. "Today I think the attitude was very good". So now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again, and see if we can do so. "The result is the most important thing and the result is flawless".

"I don't want to complain about the World Cup", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said. Unfortunately, we didn't finish the game off so that means Tottenham has the quality to strike back - which is what they did after a corner. "It was like we thought, "OK, it is a nice afternoon in Watford, Elton John is in the stands".

The Spurs chief continued: "First of all, I want to say they deserved their victory".

Not enough to convince referee Michael Oliver that a penalty should be awarded, a retrospective look at the challenge appears to suggest Liverpool were rather fortunate to come out of the situation unscathed.

"We need to still improve and improve a lot".

Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspur later today and reliable journalist Dave Maddock believes that Fabinho will return to the bench for Jürgen Klopp's side. A draw was fantastic for us - maybe we did not deserve to win.
